Certified Massage Therapist

Pain Relief Research & Movement Practitioner 

Pain calls to us for our attention. If we do not answer or acknowledge it, it grows. It only becomes more painful and harmful the longer we ignore, suppress or deny it. Even in our greatest efforts to avoid pain, it is a part of being in the body. And when ignored it becomes repetitive, habitual and normalized. I feel I have spent most of my life deciphering pain and spend most of my time dreaming about ways we can relieve it through care. 

 

Cypher Methodology is an approach and practice to pain and how we relate to it. The method is to support people in developing their own vocabulary as a tool to be in dialogue with the pain they experience. I feel it is important to remember that all pain is body. Emotional, cerebral, spiritual, existential is body. We live in a body, if pain starts speaking, it’s speaking to and through a body. As long as that is our vessel, I believe the pain we experience can be approached through bodywork. We cannot vanquish pain entirely, however we can provide experiences of relief. 

 

We give attention and voice to the pains we experience in order to provide the appropriate pain relief. The goal is for you to develop a language that you feel seen and heard in, in relationship to your pain. This approach requires the practitioner to support you in deciphering and decoding the sensations you are experiencing. Listening qualities and a non-assuming approach to care is essential.
